From the moment I called and went through the interview and application process, I was amazed at how welcoming and kind everyone was. I was afraid of the long journey that lay ahead and having the encouraging staff behind me, supporting what I was trying to accomplish for myself, was inspiring. They helped me transition from being at home with my baby girl every day to working full time. They understood that there is a world outside of school and were sensitive to the things that were going on with me, even at my worst. I never once felt like just a number, I felt part of a family. If I ever need help on any assignment, there is always someone there, and it seems no matter when I call, my instructors make me feel like I have hours of their time and that it is just me that they have their attention on. I can’t express the emotion, gratitude and how proud I am, to be a part of CD-ED. If I ever need to do any other schooling, I won’t think twice about where I will go.
